Very nice cottage in a beautiful location. The kitchen is well equipped and the living area roomy and comfortable. We enjoyed the decking in the garden and in spite of the disappointing weather had a barbecue. There are nice walks along the canal and river and on one of the days we climbed Corn Du and the views were amazing. Thank you Dave and GillRead more. We had a perfect week in beautiful Wales. Hide

Great location for our group of 6 cyclists with lockable bike shed and plenty of hot water. Thanks for the Welsh cakes, tea & coffee! The Red Lion pub is just a couple of minutes walk up the road and serves reasonable priced simple food and real ale. We will hopefully be back to stay sometime soon!
